Iraqi forces progress against ISIS in strategic Huwija district
The Iraqi Armed Forces continue their rapid advance near the strategic Huwija District, liberating several sites from the ISIS terror organization, Al-Masdar news reported on Friday, October 6.
Led by Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units), the Iraqi Armed Forces began the day by advancing from two different axis, resulting in the liberation of several towns, including Al-Muhammadiyah.
The biggest advance by the Iraqi Armed Forces came from the southern axis of Huwija, where the aforementioned town of Al-Muhammadiyah is located.
The operation to liberate Huwija began late last month, when the Iraqi Prime Minister, Haidar Al-‘Abadi, announced the start of this imperative offensive to clear central Iraq.
